A woman in Argentina has married her twin sister's convicted killer on Valentine's Day according to the Associated Press on Feb. 15. The bride's family did not want any part of the wedding ceremony. The neighbors were against it also. A mob assembled on Thursday outside at the civil registry office where the wedding took place and threw eggs and stones.
Edith Casas, the 23-year-old bride, swears that her sister's convicted killer, Victor Cingolani, is innocent of the crime. The incident happened two years ago and he has been convicted and sentenced to a 13-year prison term. Cingolani also states he is innocent and that he will be pardoned on appeal.
The couple both want to have children, but that will have to wait since Cingolani, 28, was taken back to prison in handcuffs immediately following the wedding. The bride waited for hours for the crowd to break up before she felt it was safe to leave.
The bride's mother thinks she's lost her mind and tried to block the wedding, but a judge ruled that she was competent to make her own decisions. Marcelina del Carmen Orellana, the mother, said that she couldn't understand her daughter's reasoning.
"I've always said that she is threatened by the Cingolani family; I'm afraid that something might happen to her because he is a killer and a manipulator," she told local media.
